A Soldiers Best Friend charity Pro – Am

Tomorrow is the actual event. Even if you are not playing, please come out and support this wonderful cause. There will be food and raffles, plus you can meet some of the Pro’s. It would be nice to see the breezeways full of club members watching and cheering. Sun City Grand’s Board of Directors should be there as well as USAPA’s President Jack Thomas.
It truly is going to be a Grand time at the courts. Come early and stay late.

The club will be hosting the second annual charity fund-raising event this year for Soldier’s Best Friend (SBF) on Dec 16th, 2018 from 12 noon until 5:00pm. During this season of joy and giving, we urge you to donate to this important local charity by signing up to “Play with a Pro” or by making a charitable contribution. Use this link Charity Registration Form to download the registration form with more details. Our Club made a significant difference last year in the life of a Veteran who could not leave his house, go grocery shopping or work because of PTSD or Brain injury.
Here is the list of Pro’s that have volunteered their time for this great event.

Court 13 – Del Kauss and Dave Glendenning
Court 17 – Gigi LeMaster and Kasandra Gherke
Court 18 – Laura Fenton Kovanda and Susan Baze
Court 20 – Jim Hackenberg and Mark Friedenberg
Court 21 – Dave Weinbach and Pat Kane
Court 22 – Yvonne Hackenberg and Roxanne Pierce
These are some of the Top Pro’s in Pickleball today.
Sign up quickly, as slots will be filling up fast.

How to sign up or donate: Fill out the three lines on the registration form regardless if you plan to play or just donate without playing. Mail to the address located on the form or you can drop off your donation (cash or check)/registration form at the Drop-Off box located at the courts in the Pavilion. This is an opportunity to be paired with a professional Pickleball player and play against another pro/amateur pair for a fun 20-minute play/learn session. Our goal in is for everyone to have FUN and help us raise $6,000 for this event. 4,000 dollars is needed to train a dog/vet pair. At last year’s event we raised over $4000.00 or as we said, “a dog and a paw.”

If you have a preference and would like to be paired with or against men/women/mixed/PB ranking, note it on the registration form and we’ll attempt to honor your request. Our goal is to help Veterans in need, but we can still have fun playing and meeting new people while we support this important cause. PLEASE we ask that all skill levels sign up to play. So, if you are new to the game or an expert player join us on December 16th, 2018. Pickleball is the fasting growing sport in the country! Think about this, you will be able to watch professional exhibition matches between Pro’s and at the same time, win some great raffle prizes (new paddles, clothing etc.), enjoy good food and hang out with friends.
